BAREFOOTING IN BORACAY Philippine Headline News Online's coverage of the Travel and Leisure news items in the Philippines. http://www.newsflash.org/2003/03/tl/tl001966.htm
Extractions: BAREFOOTING IN BORACAY Boracay Island, Aklan, March 6, 2003 (PNA) Sink your ankles deep into the softest, finest, whitest sand. Sand so friendly, you can't find it anywhere else in the world except Boracay. It's like burrowing into sifted confectionery sugar, top-cake flour, or baby powder. Gentle, gratifying. Bordering on the unreal. It's just got to be what the sandman sprinkles at dreamtime. Every particle that clings to your sun-drenched body is a speckle of white coral and shell worn down by the powerful ocean currents, and the annual typhoon waves. It takes patience to make a beach: each bit of organic building material must be rubbed, tossed and dragged about repeatedly by water movement till it breaks down into fine and still much finer sand. The beach is a living earthscape. With every wave, sand is deposited and removed everyday. Boracay's white beach is a delicate tribute to ecological balance. Whiteness is retained by keeping offshore coral communities healthy. It is also white because there is neither quartz, feldspar, nor magnetite to color Boracay sand otherwise. The island paradise was born in pre-history when a reef platform attached to northwestern Panay Island rose and revealed two islets. Sand accumulated between the twain, wedding them into a Philippine contribution to the world's natural treasures. From Manila to Caticlan, it took less than an hour on board the Seair. The entourage is composed of Tourism Secretary Richard Gordon, Louie Pawid of DoT, two journalists from Lakbay TV and this writer.

Barefoot Skiing - Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia Barefoot skiing is water skiing behind a motorboat without the use of water skis, commonly referred to as barefooting . barefooting requires the skier to travel at higher http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barefoot_skiing
Extractions: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search This article may contain original research . Please improve it by verifying the claims made and adding references . Statements consisting only of original research may be removed. More details may be available on the talk page (September 2007) Barefoot skiing Barefoot skiing is water skiing behind a motorboat without the use of water skis, commonly referred to as "barefooting". Barefooting requires the skier to travel at higher speeds than conventional water skiing (30-45mph). Appropriate speed varies by the weight of the barefooter and can be approximated by the formula (Skier weight in lbs /10) +20mph. Barefoot water skiing originated in Cypress Gardens Florida Richard Downing "Dick" Pope Jr. , on March 6, 1947, was the first recorded person to ever barefoot, stepping off his skis on a training boom alongside the boat. In 1950, the first barefoot competition was held in Cypress Gardens, with Pope and Mexican competitor Emilio Zamudio as the only two barefooters in the world at the time. Throughout the 1950s, additional barefoot starting techniques were invented including the two-ski jump out, the beach start (invented by Ken Tibado in 1955), and the deep water start (invented by Joe Cash in 1958). The tumble-turn maneuver was 'invented' by accident during a double barefoot routine in 1960 when Terry Vance fell onto his back during a step-off and partner Don Thomson (still on his skis) spun him around forward, enabling Vance to regain a standing posture. In 1961, Randy Rabe became the first backward barefooter by stepping off a trick ski backwards, a maneuver Dick Pope had first tried in 1950 but vowed never to try again after a painful fall. The early 1960s saw Don Thomson appear as the first "superstar" of the sport, developing both back-to-front and front-to-back turnarounds, and performing the first barefoot tandem ride in a show at Cypress Gardens.
Extractions: by Lane "Dawg" Bowers "Without knowing the force of words, it is impossible to know more." Confucius I realized that while it is still seriously hot here in paradise, you are probably wondering whether it is worth dealing with the cold weather to go out fora barefoot run where you ski. I want to give you some tips that I have known for a long time, but I like to pass on to those I ski with when it is cold. First of all, the only way to survive the cold weatherreasonably is with a dry suit. This is a suit you can wear over your barefooting gear which has rubber seals at the neck, wrists, and ankles. There is a zipper in the back. You can see the one I use at http://www.thefootersedge.com/equipment/drysuits.htm A big mistake people make is trying to use a slalom dry suit for barefooting. They are very different. A good barefooting dry suit is built to be able to sit on the water and can easily take the punishment of the water abrasion while keeping you dry inside. The nice bonus on using a dry suit is that it makes learning your starts and tumble turns easier as well because of the extra buoyancy from the air inside.
Barefooting To Save The World, By Antera Yes, I'm serious about the 'save the world' part, and I'm going to explain the connection to going barefoot. But first, some background http://www.soulevolution.org/inspirations/barefooting.htm
Extractions: Barefooting to Save the World by Antera Our bodies evolved with direct daily contact with Earth, and all our senses are tuned to the natural world. Our eyes are designed to see the greens and browns of plants. Everything we look at puts frequencies into our brain and energy systems in a very direct way, feeding and nourishing our systems or irritating them. Not only the colors, but the curves and forms of nature are what our eyes are designed to feed on, not the straight edges of buildings. Sounds and smells likewise affect us. But the most direct contact with Earth is through touch. I learned a lot about bare feet from my two sons, who experimented with going barefoot all the time for a couple of years, a natural consequence of studying primitive skills, their area of expertise. It was hard at first, but their feet quickly built up their natural form so they could even walk on gravel or hot pavement without wincing. The soles got thick, but not tough and callused like I had expected they remained soft and pliable. But I had to go to a meeting in the city, so I bit the bullet. I found myself near some very tall buildings in the financial district, and I went up to the top of one, then out on a balcony for the view. I looked at the buildings all around, with hundreds of tiny offices and people doing their work. It suddenly hit me that these people are totally separated from the planet all day, up in their offices far above the ground. And these are the people who are running the country! These are the people who are involved in business and finance, making decisions that affect all the rest of us! I finally understood how some people have been able to get so screwed up in their priorities that they no longer even care about the planet. They have no connection to her!!

Someone once posted: Years ago (in the 60's and 70's) skateboarding was a sport that MANY young people enjoyed doing barefoot. Now, you NEVER see a skateboarder barefoot! NEVER! In fact, if you visit the skateboarding sites, and look up the history of skateboarding, they do not even acknowledge that the early skateboarders preferred to do it barefoot. (There were many neat tricks that required you to be barefoot.) Time for a little barefooting archaeology. Yes, kids definitely used to skateboard barefoot. I think two things enabled that. First, kids went barefoot in general a lot more. Second, the boards in use at that time were often the "banana" type boards. I've tried my son's skateboard and the first thing I noticed was that the edges were too sharp to comfortably curl my toes around. They aren't really designed to be foot-friendly, but I suppose one could adapt. I also tried an old style "banana" board. It's much thicker with nicely curved and smooth edges. It felt very natural in bare feet. I saw an (older) skateboarding book once, that included a short section on barefoot tricks. This included a diagram of something called the "gorilla grip" where the toes are wrapped under the board for jumps made while holding onto the board with one's feet. I had heard about this 18 minute film short (

Since that time, advances in equipment and techniques have paved the way for new and more exciting ways to “foot.” A barefoot boom allows easier training for novice and advanced footers alike, while padded wet suits provide protection and floatation. Even the ski rope is special with Kevlar material to prevent stretching at boat speeds ranging from 35 to nearly 50 mph. Once they’ve mastered the basics, barefooters can advance to perform one-foot maneuvers, tumble turns, and even backwards barefoot and barefoot pyramids. Then there’s the “barefoot line” where 10 or more footers fly by the crowd creating a massive wall of water. The team also performs a unique “barefoot thread” where two footn’ skiers cut under two high-speed ski jumpers. Wow! Barefooting brings lots of speed and excitement to the show. They’re the fastest thing on water so don’t look away or you’ll miss it!
